These release notes contains information about features and their status in the X.Org Foundation X11R7.5 release.
This release is the sixth modular release of the X Window System. The next full release will be X11R7.6 and is expected in 2010.
Unlike X11R1 through X11R6.9, X11R7.x releases are not built from one monolithic source tree, but many individual modules. These modules are distributed as individual source code releases, and each one is released when it is ready, instead of only when the overall window system is ready for release. The X11R7.x releases are made by “rolling up” the individual module releases into a collection that is often affectionately called the “katamari” by the developers.
The X11R7.5 release does not include all of the software formerly included in the previous X Window System releases. It is designed to be a reasonable baseline from which to start when building the window system for the first time for a new installation, distribution, or package set. It does not provide a full desktop environment, expecting a more feature rich set of applications to be installed from one of the several excellent desktop environments available for the X Window System. The X.Org developers continue to maintain and produce new releases of much of the software that was formerly in the main window system releases but is no longer included in the katamari releases, including many of the Athena Widgets desktop applications that were provided as samples in previous window system versions.
Once their window system build is established, most builders watch for announcements of individual module updates on the xorg-announce mailing list and update to those as needed. The X.Org Foundation currently releases the X Window System katamari releases approximately once a year, but many modules, especially the X servers and drivers, are updated more frequently between those releases.
For help with how to build and develop in the modular tree see the Modular Developer's Guide in the X.Org wiki.
We encourage you to submit bug fixes and enhancements to

The release numbering is based on the original MIT X numbering system. X11 refers to the version of the network protocol that the X Window system is based on: Version 11 was first released in 1988 and has been stable for 21 years, with only upward compatible additions to the core X protocol, a record of stability envied in computing. Formal releases of X started with X version 9 from MIT; the first commercial X products were based on X version 10. The MIT X Consortium and its successors, the X Consortium, the Open Group X Project Team, and the X.Org Group released versions X11R3 through X11R6.6. Since the founding of the X.Org Foundation in early 2004, many further releases have been issued, from X11R6.7 to the current 7.5.
The next section describes what is new in the latest version (7.5) compared with the previous full release (7.4).
This is a sampling of the new features in X11R7.5. A more complete list of changes can be found in the ChangeLog files that are part of the source of each X module.
Multi-Pointer X (MPX) provides the user with multiple independent mouse cursors and multiple independent keyboard foci. Each cursor is a true system cursor and different pointers can operate in multiple applications simultaneously.
Input device properties allow you to attach properties to a device. These properties can be of arbitrary type and can be changed without the server having to know their details.
The X Input Extension version 2.0 (XI2) is designed to replace both core input processing and prior versions of the X Input Extension. Besides MPX, it provides a number of other enhancements over version 1.5, including:
use of XGE and GenericEvents.
explicit device hierarchy of master and slave devices.
the ability for devices to change capabilities at runtime.
raw device events
Resize, Rotate and Reflect Extension (RANDR) version 1.3 builds on the changes made with version 1.2 and adds some new capabilities without fundmentally changing the extension again. The following features are added in this version:
The implementation work for general rotation support made it trivial to add full projective transformations. These can be used to scale the screen up/down as well as perform projector keystone correct or other effects.
Panning was removed with RandR 1.2 because the old semantics didn't fit any longer. With RandR 1.3 panning can be specified per crtc.
The DRI2 extension is designed to associate and access auxillary rendering buffers with an X drawable. It is a essentially a helper extension to support implementation of direct rendering drivers/libraries/technologies. The first consumer of this extension is a direct rendering OpenGL driver, but the DRI2 extension is not designed to be OpenGL specific. Work is underway to utilize DRI2 for the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix (VPDAU) as well. Direct rendering implementations of OpenVG, Xv, cairo and other graphics APIs should find the functionality exposed by this extension helpful and hopefully sufficient.
Video and input driver enhancements. Please see the ChangeLog files for individual drivers; there are far too many updates to list here.
... and the usual assortment of correctness and crash fixes.
On most platforms, X11R7.5 has a single hardware-driving X server binary called Xorg. This binary can dynamically load the video drivers, input drivers, and other modules that are needed. Xorg has currently has support for Linux, Solaris, and some BSD OSs on Alpha, PowerPC, IA-64, AMD64, Intel x86, Sparc, and MIPS platforms.
Additional specialized X server binaries may be found depending on the platform and build configuration, including:
is a proxy X server that uses one or more other X servers as its display devices. It provides multi-head X functionality for displays that might be located on different machines.
is a nested X server, that operates as both an X client and X server. Xnest is a client of the real server which manages windows and graphics requests on its behalf. Xnest is a server to its own clients, and manages windows and graphics requests on their behalf. To these clients, it appears to be a conventional server.
is a X server that outputs to a window on a pre-existing “host” X display. Unlike Xnest which is an X proxy, and thus limited to the capabilities of the host X server, Xephyr is a full X server which uses the host X server window as a “framebuffer” via fast SHM XImages.
is a virtual framebuffer X server that can run on machines with no display hardware and no physical input devices. It emulates a dumb framebuffer using virtual memory.
is an X server that interacts with the MacOS X native Aqua window system, displaying windows on the Mac desktop and accepting input from the Mac system devices, allowing X11 applications to be used in a native Mac desktop session.
is an X server that runs under the Cygwin environment, interacting with the Microsoft Windows native window system, displaying windows on the Windows desktop and accepting input from the Windows system devices, allowing X11 applications to be used in a native Windows desktop session.

The Xorg server relies on the operating system's native module loader support for handling program modules. The X server makes use of modules for video drivers, X server extensions, input device drivers, framebuffer layers, and internal components used by some drivers (like XAA & EXA).
The module interfaces (both API and ABI) used in this release are subject to change without notice. While we will attempt to provide backward compatibility for the module interfaces, we cannot guarantee this. Compatibility in the other direction is explicitly not guaranteed because new modules may rely on interfaces added in new releases.
|Note about module security|
The X server runs with root privileges, i.e., the X server loadable modules also run with these privileges. For this reason we recommend that all users be careful to only use loadable modules from reliable sources, otherwise the introduction of viruses and contaminated code can occur and wreak havoc on your system. We hope to have a mechanism for signing/verifying the modules that we provide available in a future release.
The Xorg server uses a configuration file as the primary mechanism for providing configuration and run-time parameters. The configuration file format is described in detail in the xorg.conf(5) manual page.
Note that this release features significant improvements for running the server without a configuration file, so many users may find that that they don't need a configuration file.
The recommended method for generating a configuration file is to use the Xorg server itself. Run as root:
Command line options can be used to override some default parameters and parameters provided in the configuration file. These command line options are described in the Xorg(1) manual page.
The XFree86 Acceleration Architecture (XAA) was completely rewritten from scratch for XFree86 4.x and is used in X11R7.5. Most drivers implement acceleration by making use of the XAA module.
EXA was created as a new driver acceleration architecture to replace XAA. EXA was designed specifically to accelerate Render operations. This release features improved driver support for EXA. See the individual driver changelogs for details.
Some multi-head configurations are supported in X11R7.5. Support for multiple PCI/AGP cards may require a kernel with changes to support VGA arbitration.
One of the main problems is with drivers not sufficiently initializing cards that were not initialized at boot time. This has been improved somewhat with the INT10 support that is used by most drivers (which allows secondary card to be "soft-booted", but in some cases there are other issues that still need to be resolved. Some combinations can be made to work better by changing which card is the primary card (either by using a different PCI slot, or by changing the system BIOS's preference for the primary card).
Xinerama is an X server extension that allows multiple physical screens to behave as a single screen. With traditional multi-head in X11, windows cannot span or cross physical screens. Xinerama removes this limitation. Xinerama does, however, require that the physical screens all have the same root depth, so it isn't possible, for example, to use an 8-bit screen together with a 16-bit screen in Xinerama mode.
Xinerama is not enabled by default, and can be enabled with the
+xinerama command line option for the
The VESA® Display Data Channel (DDCTM) standard allows the monitor to tell the video card (or in some cases the computer directly) about itself; particularly the supported screen resolutions and refresh rates.
Partial or complete DDC support is available in most of the video drivers. DDC is enabled by default, but can be disabled with a "Device" section entry: Option "NoDDC". We have support for DDC versions 1 and 2; these can be disabled independently with Option "NoDDC1" and Option "NoDDC2".
At startup the server prints out DDC information from the display, and can use this information to set the default monitor parameters, or to warn about monitor sync limits if those provided in the configuration file don't match those that are detected.
Several drivers use DDC information to set the screen size and
pitch. This can be overridden by explicitly resetting it to
the and non-DDC default value 75 with the
command line option for the X
server, or by specifying appropriate screen dimensions with the
"DisplaySize" keyword in the "Monitor" section of the config
Direct rendered OpenGL® support is provided for several hardware platforms by the Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI). Further information about DRI can be found at the DRI Project's web site. The 3D core rendering component is provided by Mesa.
Of note is that this release supports building the X server using the system-wide libdrm. Previously, drm was kept in the server's tree and loaded as a module, rather than using the standard OS mechanisms for managing shared libraries of code. This requires that the server be built using a version of libdrm of 2.3.0 or newer if it is to use DRM.
The Xorg server has previously allowed users to exit the server by pressing the keys Control + Alt + Backspace. While this function is still enabled by default in this release, the keymap data usually used with Xorg, from the xkeyboard-config project, has been modified to not map that sequence by default, in order to reduce the chance that inexperienced users will accidentally destroy their work.
Users who wish to have this functionality available by default
may enable it via the XKB configuration option
instance, the setxkbmap command can be used
to enable this by running:
setxkbmap -option "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
The X servers in the X11R7.5 release now start by default
with an empty black screen and do not draw the mouse cursor until
a client sets the cursor image. To restore the classic behavior
of starting with the grey weave pattern and × cursor, start
the X server with the
Details about the font support in X11R7.5 can be found in the README.fonts document.
Previous versions of X installed font files under the
of the X installation directory (for instance, in X11R6 releases,
was commonly used). This release changes the default installation
path to the fonts
subdirectory of the
datadir setting from the
GNU autoconf configuration. For instance, if the fonts are
configured with ./configure --prefix=/usr,
they will be installed under subdirectories of
The font module configure scripts all take an option of
to override the default. If
is not specified, the fontutil pkg-config
file will be consulted to find the

The X11R7.5 release supports PCF format bitmap fonts stored
uncompressed or compressed via the compress,
gzip, or bzip2 programs.
To utilize bzip2 compression, the libXfont
and mkfontscale modules must be built with
--with-bzip2 — all other methods are
enabled by default.
To specify which compression method to use when installing
a font module from X11R7.5 the configure scripts accept
an option of
where TYPE may be none,
compress, gzip, or
Previous versions of X came with two Postscript Type1 font backends. The functionality from the “Type1” backend has been replaced by the Type1 support in the “FreeType” backend.
The CID-keyed font format was designed by Adobe Systems for fonts with large character sets. The CID-keyed format is obsolete, as it has been superseded by other formats such as OpenType/CFF and support for CID-keyed fonts has been removed from X11.
Most of the modules in this release use the AM_SILENT_RULES option of GNU automake 1.11. When building the software, most output will show an abbreviated format for the commands being run, such as:
V=1to the make command line or add the flag
--disable-silent-rulesto the configure command.
Several new options have been added to the configure scripts
for font modules in this release. See the
Font support section of this document
for details of the
The C language header files for a number of X11 protocol extensions were refactored in this release to better split the protocol definitions and the client library definitions. Efforts were made to retain compatibility for existing software, but use of some headers may now trigger warnings suggesting including new or more appropriate headers instead.
Since these changes were made to files in both the proto and lib modules for each extension, builders upgrading individual modules will have to update these modules in unison to avoid breaking builds of software using the headers from these modules.
This section describes other items of note for the X11R7.5 release.
The socket directories created in /tmp are now required to be owned by root and have their sticky-bit set. If the permissions are not set correctly, the component using this directory will print an error message and fail to start. Common socket directories that are known to be affected include:
/tmp/.font-unix /tmp/.ICE-unix /tmp/.X11-unix
There are several solutions to the problem of when to create these directories. They could be created at install time by the system's installer if the /tmp dir is persistent. They could be created at boot time by the system's boot scripts (e.g., the init.d scripts). Or, they could be created by PAM modules at service startup or user login time.
The solution chosen is platform dependent, and the system administrator should be able to handle creating those directories on any systems that do not have the correct ownership or permissions.
When the Composite extension is enabled, a new visual is created. This visual is different from the other visuals used by X applications in that it includes an alpha component. It is used by the compositing manager and other Composite aware applications.
Most X applications ignore this visual since it is not useful to
them; however some applications mistakenly try to use it, which
will cause them to fail. An environment variable,
was added to the X11 library to hide this visual from applications
that mistakenly try to use it. If an application fails only when
the Composite is enabled, try setting this environment variable
before starting the application.
This section lists current plans for removal of obsolete or deprecated
components in the X.Org releases. As our releases are open source,
users who continue to require these can find the source in previous
releases and continue to use these, but the X.Org Foundation and its
volunteers have decided the burden of continued maintenance and
distribution in the core X11 releases outweighs the benefits of doing
so. In some cases, this is simply because no one has volunteered to do
continued maintenance, so if software is listed here that you need, you
<firstname.lastname@example.org> to volunteer to
take over maintainership, either inside or outside of the Xorg release
DGA 2.0 is included in 7.5. Documentation for the client libraries can be found in the XDGA(3) man page. DGA should be considered deprecated; if you are relying on it, please let us know what you need it for so we can find better solutions.
The Xorg server currently uses the HAL framework to discover connected input devices, receive notification of hotplug events for them, and to retrieve configuration parameters for them. The HAL maintainers have deprecated HAL, so the X.Org developers are investigating alternatives. As a result, configuration of input devices via HAL *.fdi files may not be supported in future Xorg server releases.
The experimental Xsdl server has never been finished or maintained, and will be removed in future X server releases.
The Xprint server and extension have been removed in this release. The libXaw8 variant of the Athena Widgets which added Xprint widgets has been removed from this release. Xprint support in a number of client programs has also been removed.
The kdrive X servers for vesa, ati, chips, epson, i810, igs, ipaq, itsy, mach64, mga, neomagic, nvidia, pcmcia, pm2, r128, savage, sis300, sis530, smi, trident, trio, ts300, via, and vxworks have been removed in this release. Most of these have not worked or been maintained in recent releases.
Support has been removed from the X servers for the following extensions, which were obsolete, not widely used, or not working:
The xorgcfg GUI and xorgconfig CLI utilities have been removed in this release. See the Configuration File section for alternative methods of Xorg configuration.
The ioport utility and its aliases (inb, inw, inl, outb, outw, and outl) for manipulating I/O space addresses directly have been removed in this release.
This section lists the credits for the X11R7.5 release. For a more detailed breakdown, refer to the ChangeLog file in the source tree for each module, the history in the xorg product in freedesktop.org's git repositories or the 'git log' information for individual source files.
The X Window System has been a collaborative effort from its inception. Our apologies for anyone or organization inadvertently overlooked. Many individuals (including major contributors) who worked on X are represented by their employers in this list. If you feel we have left anyone out, please let us know.
